By far the best quality pub / gastro-pub in the area. Menu doesn't change very often - but food is always so good, it doesn't really matter. Would highly recommend for light lunch and / or evening meals.

Booked here on Sunday as we had friends visiting and had never been before so relied on trip advisor reviews. I have to say the food was fabulous. We all had something different and all of us loved it, there wasn't one thing done badly which is extremely rare. Good quality ingredients and well cooked...best chips we'd had in ages... More

Had a fantastic Sunday lunch here. Food brilliant, staff very attentive, helpful and friendly. Thanks to both the girls on duty. Lovely to see smiley faces and staff who obviously go the extra mile to make a difference to the 'customer experience '.

This is a pleasant pub in the heart of Alcester which serves good food. Unfortunately its real ale is not as good as it used to be as it is now far too cold and not in the best of condition indeed as it stands it no longer merits it's entry into the good beer guide.

I'm keen to understand what has motivated you to register on TA and leave a negative review and do the same on our Facebook page. I'm also keen to understand what qualifies you to make such sweeping statements about the beer we sell. I discuss every day the merits of one beer over another with real ale drinkers in the... More

Having visited this pub st various times I must write another review. Previously, we have been very happy to come hear. Having had visitors from London we wanted to take them out to on of our local food pubs. As it was Saturday night I phoned Friday to book a table. When we arrived at the pub they said our... More

I have been here on lots of occasions and cannot fault the food in any way. The Sunday dinner is the best in the area by a long way. Also they can do large bookings, I have been twice for family birthday party's, with booking for 15 to 20. Guests. And both times were brilliant. The price of the food... More

I had the best fish and chips I've ever had. The batter was light and the fish cooked to perfection it melted in my mouth. Excellent chips too. Mother-in-law had the roast lamb and she couldn't fault it and she's very fussy! Hubby enjoyed his salmon too. Great meal and great staff.

We visit Alcester quite often and visit this pub on occasions. It feels like if your not a "local" who perch at and completely block the bar, then you are treated with a little indifference by the bar staff. Its a pretty busy place so don't expect on an evening to be able to sit anywhere with your drink. Very... More
